Is Your Attic Insulation Getting the Job Done?

According to the EnergyStar™ Program, heating and cooling costs can be slashed by properly sealing and insulating the home. Insulating the attic should be a top priority for preventing heat loss because as heat rises, a critical amount of heat loss from the living areas of the home occurs through an unfinished attic.  
During the summer months, heat trapped in the attic can reduce a home’s ability to keep cool, forcing occupants to further tax the home's cooling system.
The aim should be to insulate the living space of the house while allowing the roof to remain the same temperature as the outside. This prevents cold outside air from travelling through the attic and into the living area of the home. 

The Canada Housing and Mortgage Corporation (CMHC) compares a properly insulated house to dressing for the weather.

In colder winter climates such as the Greater Edmonton region, an R50 insulation value is recommended.
Insulation upgrades are a relatively inexpensive renovation to your home taking about 2 hours on average. The average bungalow home will cost approximately $1000. Most home owners will experience lower energy bills immediately and recover the cost of the renovation within 2 to 3 years.

  10. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  11. When there’s an issue with your roof, it’s extremely important to look after it as quickly as possible.

    Also seemingly tiny troubles will promptly become significant ones. However roof problems aren’t always simple to observe, and lots of property owners will not locate troubles with their roof till the issues have ended up being destructive.
